The Attractions of Guatemala, Photos 2004.

Rem Sapojnikov, Tiwy.com

Guatemala may be called the quintessence of the Central America. There is everything here is the most and the best. The highest and gravest volcanoes, the most impressive churches and the Maya Pyramids, the grandest capital, the greatest population in the region (11 to 12 million), the most developed industry and the lest literate Indian population.

Guatemala is a democratic republic where the election takes place every four years. It is true to say that the country was ruled by tyrannical dictators for a long time. The names of Ubico, Armas, Rios Mont made it into history of Latin America forever as synonyms to genocide, repressions and bloody massacres with all those considered to be either red or pink. The guerilla syndrome has not passed away by the present day, because perhaps the power in the country is still controlled by the oligarchic circles that keep their people in the force structures, parliament, financial and economic institutions.

Guatemala is a dreamland for a tourist! Once the land used to be the heart of the Maya Empire. The memory of the past ages has penetrated the culture and traditions of the country.

Guatemala means comfortable climate, luxurious nature, beautiful, kindly and extremely talented people. To get really acquainted with Guatemala it takes weeks and months which, alas, a fellow-tourist, an inexhaustible traveler or an adventurous wanderer often falls short of.

The photo coverage suggested by Tiwy.com will give a piece of advice to those intending to visit Guatemala in terms of what to see and where to call on first of all.
